Providing Solutions After You Receive An Unfavorable Claims Decision

Your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier may try to use a variety of excuses to avoid paying a valid workers' comp claim. It may state that:

  • The accident resulting in the injury did not occur at work, or in the course of the victim's employment
  • The injury is the result of a pre-existing condition, not a workplace accident
  • The injured employee did not report the accident in a timely manner
  • The injured employee was acting improperly or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, which may negate a claim
  • The work-related injury at the heart of the claim does not exist
  • The injury was the result of an idiopathic condition

If your workers' compensation claim was denied by an employer or insurance carrier, do not give up on your case. Just because a claim is denied does not mean it is not valid. Insurance carriers do not have the final word in matters of workers' comp law — in fact, they may only be stating their position, not the law that governs your claim.

Mr. Christiansen is an experienced lawyer who is admitted to the bar in both Missouri and Kansas. He can help you determine the best course of action to seek the benefits to which you are entitled.
